A jaunt through Hobby Lobby the other day made me think of a new substrate to try for one of my girls - Balsa. It comes in 6" x 36" in the model section of the store.
Balsa seemed like a pretty porous material so I started with a coat of clear gesso that was sanded once dry then lightly sketched a girl on a 6" square piece of wood.
She is painted with NeoColor crayons and Panpastels. LOVE how the woodgrain shows through!
